  • Abstract:
    This report provides a summary of the safety performance of carriers across all the individual segments in the industry. It includes summaries for both for-hire and private carriers in each segment and is drawn from measures that are collected as part of FMCSA’s SafeStat algorithm. The discussion is divided into five sections and gives results for the for-hire and private firms, separately, across all the segments. The initial section compares the industry’s segments (for-hire and private firms separately) based on the overall Compliance Review (CR) data for a carrier’s most recent review, regardless of when it occurred. The second section focuses on driver performance based on CR results and roadside inspections across the industry’s segments. Section three is devoted to vehicle performance, again based on CR results and roadside inspections. Within section two, there is a discussion devoted to an analysis of the performance of the various industry segments with respect to hours-of-service compliance by drivers. Section four assesses the performance of for-hire and private motor carriers across all industry segments in the area of safety management practices. Section five compares the segments in terms of fatality and total crash rate measures that are based on State-reported crashes as well as on crash rate information collected during CRs. In meeting its objective to reduce truck crashes and the associated injuries and fatalities, FMCSA has a range of enforcement tools. With limited resources, however, the FMCSA benefits from databases that enable it to more effectively target those resources toward specific problem areas. In monitoring the safety performance of all for-hire and private carriers, it is important to recognize that the motor carrier industry has distinct operating segments with significantly different environments and safety performance records. The assessment of the safety performance of for-hire and private carriers in each of the industry’s major operating segments is a key decision tool that will facilitate more effective use of FMCSA resources.
